TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -Bobby Bowden has signed a one-year contract to coach a 34th season at Florida State.
An administration official familiar with the negotiations says the 79-year-old Bowden signed the agreement Wednesday. The administrator requested anonymity because an official announcement has yet to be made. Bowden's salary was not immediately released.
FSU offensive coordinator Jimbo Fisher must replace Bowden by January 2011 or the school will owe him $5 million.
Bowden's 382 career coaching wins are one fewer than Penn State's Joe Paterno, the all-time leader among major college coaches. Paterno, 82, recently signed a three-year extension.
